I love to think of nature
as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Nifty Fifty Birthday


CPS 148

I've been MIA from the blogging world most of this first week of the new year.  Getting back to reality always takes a push after the holidays.  It was a nice surprise to find my profile featured on 2Sketches4You this week too!  So a shout out to Laura and Kazan over there, thank you so much!  Hopefully if I had any new visitors on their behalf that they found me up and running after making some changes here for the new year.

I did find some time to get at least one card done this week.  My brother turned 50 this week and so I challenged myself again in making another masculine card.  Why are masculine cards so challenging?  Maybe because there is a limited amount of card making supplies out there to cater to the adult male gender?  Guess I will have to surf the net in my free time (that will be in 2020!) to find more masculine supplies before I need them again.

Yet, I digress a bit.  I made this card also for the CPS 148 challenge this week.  I love their simple designs that then you can embellish as little or as much as you want. Since I'm on a crafting budget and I blew that for supplies for Christmas cards and I'm number punch challenged, I used my computer to make the number fifty and cut it out. 

Stamps:  None!
Paper:  DP from DCWV.  Baby blue, cocoa brown and paprika cardstock.
Ink:  Timber Brown from StazOn for distressed, antique look around paper edges.
Extras:  Decorative ribbon; Photo rounder punch; Birthday embossing folder from Cuddlebug; Sizzlet gift die cut; Sizzlet Happy Birthday die cut; numbers printed off computer and cut out.

Now I'm off to finish some new year cards and thank you cards and peruse the world of card challenges!

The present die is so handy! I like the rounded corners here to contrast with the rectangles...
